I go to the gym 4 days a week.
I start with cardio each time - 35 minutes on the elliptical.
Then I move to strength training.
Day one is lower body and core. I use 5 different machines (incline leg press, glute, hip adductor, hip abductor and seated leg extension) then I hit the mats for 4 core exercises (planks, supermans, crunches and leg raises). I throw a bunch of stretches in there, too.
Day two is upper body. I use 7 different machines (chest press, lat pull down, row, fly, biceps curl, triceps something or other, and shoulder press).
Some days I do lower and upper body together...if I've not been to the gym in 48 hours and won't be back for just as long.
A trainer at the YMCA helped me put my routine together. Trainers are great. My routine is newish (as of the last 6 weeks), so it is still evolving. I'll keep adding new machines and floor exercises as they become possible for me.
